Pros: DDR4 2666
ran at 15-17-17-35 @ 2666 1.2v
15-17-17-37 @ 2800 1.35V
both settings tested with 10 runs of Intelburn 2.54 at 31000+mb and overnight with Prime 64 v277
Cons: You do not get the free corsair fans with this kit, bummer.
Other Thoughts: Tested on Asus Rampage V
I highly recommend this series of ram. Dominator Ram is simply one of the best and highest quality out there. Corsair customer service has always been excellent when I have had to RMA in the past. Corsair usually has an express option to get you up and going with minimal down time.
I debated between the Dominator 2666 cas15 and Vengeance 3000 cas16 with dual fans, I just could not turn away from the reliability I have had with all my Dominator modules. Sure they are bit pricy however I know I can count of them for years to come.
Pros: 1)Massive space for a Massive CPU cooler. Using a Asrock z77Pro-M with a Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E on a I7 3770k.
2) Nice slick setup - enabling the creation of a 'Black Box that Rocks'
3) I went with the upgrade for the top fan SILVERSTONE Air Penetrator AP182 180mm Case Fan - extra 170cfm of air (it is finger biter of a fan) +recommend+
4) Plenty of space for long graphic card
5) Multiple way to place your PSU to maximize your cable length. Did not seem to affect the PSU temp, mainly because of the AP182 air flow
6) Nice to see a case where you dont need to buy tiny cpu coolers.
7) You can use the space along the edge on the 180mm to hide cable routes.
8) The top fan even allows a slot for air cooling into the HD bays.
Cons: Now these are more FYIs and issues
1) The Slim CD/DVD/Bluray rom HAS to be a SLOT load.
2) I had to tear out the dust catch on the CD rom slot . Was getting caught in the loader
3) I wish they would had screw slots for inside the case for extra drives. I am using RAID 5 (4 HDs) with SSD for a boost.
4) You have to be careful on the size of PSU / I was using a SeaSonic M12D SS-850 150mm L however I needed more space so I switched a Enermax Liberty 140mm Length (So go with 150mm max unless you have extremely flexable cable or 140mm for extra space to tuck the extra cables into the PSU bay.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this case to anyone that want to OC a m-atx board. Overall it is solid however they do use plastic more often than in other Sugo cases I have owned.
-As I stated you need to buy a slot loader Rom (no buttons for eject are allowed)
-As I stated careful about PSU size <150mm
-Buy a upgraded fan Silverstone 180mm AP182
-Buy a 3way 3pin fan cable for the 3 fans that go on the GPU cover.
-If you are looking to have 5 HDs, you can support 2 3.5HDs and 2 2.5SSDs. You will need to mount the extra HD(s) in the case under the PSU. I punched a couple holes in the front to mount a 2HD bay device.
This review is from: ENERMAX MAXREVO Series EMR1350EWT 1350W ATX12V / EPS12V v2.92, v2.8 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Pros: Bought this PSU on 6/6/12 - So I have had it up and running for a very long time.
1) Enermax great PSU - I tried to wait for 1500w version however that did not come out til Xmas.
2) Cables are all solid - quality and length
3) No problem with the voltage - All the V's 3.3/+5/+12 all right near the mark
4)No problems in heavy 6 months of use. - Driving RAID 0+1, 0 and BSOD - 4HD/3SSDs-/2 655pumps/LED lights/OC 3860x-4.9 @ 32gb-2400/14 fans/2x6990HD
(By heavy use I mean 18h/day.)
5) Free Vegas Fan-woot!
6) Cable bag and velcro ties
Cons: Honestly, I have to leave it blank. Nothing to note in 6months. Fan is quiet, again nothing to say
Other Thoughts: Emermax RMA process in the past (excellent) - Do have advanced RMA process - So I know if I have a problem I can have a replacement in couple days.
I have own the Galaxy DII series and Liberty still running strong.
Just wish they would have had the 1500 Maxrevo out sooner.
